One of the absolute best things about FanDuel has been the addition of the Same Game Parlay. The Same Game Parlay allows users to parlay game bets, like spread, moneyline and total, with player and game props from one game.
There are three bets for the Sunday Night Football game that I have my eyes on, and I’m going to take advantage of FanDuel’s generosity and package them in a 3-leg parlay to try and win big.
3-Leg Parlay @ +638 - $50 Bet Wins $318
Leg 1: Eagles +6.5 @ -110
I kind of liked the Eagles when Washington was a 3.5-point favorite, and I really like Philadelphia as 6.5-point dogs. The Eagles are going to be without a bunch of starters with Miles Sanders, Fletcher Cox, Jordan Mailata and others sitting out, but I don’t think it’s going to be enough to make this a blowout.
To be clear, I think Washington wins this one. They’re the better team with something to play for, but I like Jalen Hurts and the Eagles to keep it close. As an Eagles fan, I’d much prefer they lay an egg and take the better draft pick, but I expect them to play hard with the rookie under center and keep it within a touchdown when the final whistle blows.
Leg 2: Under 43.5 @ -110
I also don’t expect many points to be scored Sunday night. Washington’s defense is one of the best in the NFL, especially when it comes to getting after the QB, and the Eagles are missing a bunch of guys up front.
I’d be surprised if the Eagles put up more than 17 points tonight, and I don’t expect Washington to light it up either. Washington hasn’t scored more than 23 points in the past four weeks. They’ve been winning games by playing strong defense and not trying to do too much on offense. With the division and a spot in the playoffs on the line, look for them to keep doing what works.
Leg 3: Alshon Jeffery over 17.5 yards receiving @ -110
I was a little surprised to see Alshon Jeffery’s yards total this low. Since Jalen Hurts has taken over at QB for the Eagles, Alshon is averaging 33.33 yards receiving per game. Hurts has shown a tendency to look for the big veteran receiver when he gets in trouble, and I expect him to be in trouble a fair amount on Sunday.
Of the three legs of this parlay, I am most confident in this one. I expect him to get at least his average with Hurts, if not more. Hammer this over.
